- CT Follows California's Bold Example
As they flail about in an effort to find news ways to appropriate the wealth of their citizens, the Connecticut Legislature is following the example of that economic dynamo, the state of California, and is pondering a 'Digital Download Tax':
The bill, proposed by the General Assembly's Finance, Review and Bonding Committee, would have consumers pay the 6.35% sales tax on any electronic transfer.
Supporters say the bill would level the playing field for brick-and-mortar retailers in the state who are already required to charge Connecticut sales tax to consumers who purchase these products in their stores.
Let's be serious. The legislature doesn't care a bit about 'leveling the playing field'. They have redistribution plans and that takes dough. That's all they really care about.
It's just one more way to pick the pockets of North Greenwich, and give a portion of the loot to their 'bought men' in Bridgeport and the other corruption sink holes. They have a lot in common with NJ in that respect.
